Sunrise Valley Ranch Airstrip In Oregon Gets An FAA Identifier

Improvement To Meet Guidelines Completed By Local Pilot Volunteers

Sunrise Valley Ranch Airstrip east of Prineville, OR has been awarded an FAA identifier (29OR). Recreational Aviation Foundation (RAF) Oregon Liaison Richard Mayes worked hard with the owners to make this happen, originally identifying the potential airstrip location and runway alignment, for safe approaches, aircraft parking area and access. He advised the Fildes family of the Oregon RUS and the RAF’s “Guide for the Private Airstrip Owner”, and they cooperated to make an airstrip on their privately-owned working ranch open for public use.

Earthwork and drainage were planned and constructed by local pilot volunteers; Richard advised on end and boundary markings, parking and windsock placement, completed the FAA documents for charting, and prepared the pilot's safety briefing. Topping off all this work, the Fildes hosted an opening day fly-in to introduce the new airstrip to the community.

Richard and the RAF wish to thank all the local volunteers who donated equipment time and labor to construct the airstrip. “In return for all our cooperation, the Fildes are strong promoters of the RAF, sharing the word and passing out RAF literature.” Richard said.

Visitors are welcome to camp adjacent to the airstrip, stay in the ranch’s rustic lodge, or drop in for a delicious family style meal. ”Local pilots have already made this a favorite destination for weekend breakfast and the dining area is often crowded,” Richard said.
